Fishy Halloween Spaghetti by Chef Nina Timm

“Fishy Halloween spaghetti – Yes, I had to go there!

This Fishy Halloween spaghetti is so good, adults like it too. Ok, I ate a plate full while shooting this recipe. There is nothing but goodness in this recipe, the fishcakes are made with salmon and trout which is so good for you. The tomato sauce is packed with anti-oxidants and the pasta is just enough not to be too much starch. Did I mention that these little fishcakes are perfect for lunchboxes, snack platters and a quick no-mess supper for the kids. I am not the worlds biggest fan on Halloween, but the kids are.

My children love fish cakes. Even when they were small, it was always a good option to get them to eat good protein.”

  • 15 mini Salmon & Trout Fish Cakes
  • 1 x 390g Woolworths Italian Crushed Tomatoes – a tin of chopped tomatoes will do just fine.
  • 100 g spaghetti – cooked according to package instructions
  • a little mayo in a squishy bottle
  • a few black currents or pieces of black olives to use for eyes


Cook the pasta according to package instructions. Heat the tomato sauce.

The fish cakes literally need 2 minutes in the microwave.

Drain the spaghetti and when you are ready use the spaghetti to make face bandages.

Use a squishy bottle to make the eyes with mayo and do the pupils with piece of olive or the black currents.

All you have to do then is to plate up and see how the kids devour these plates of Fishy Halloween Spaghetti.
